The U.S. Department of Defense is considering improving and expanding military bases in the Indo-Pacific region, including air bases in Guam and Australia, while the Biden administration has completed its first comprehensive review of the deployment of U.S. forces overseas, including U.S. forces in Korea, the Wall Street Journal reported.
“There are no immediate changes to existing troop deployments,” the Wall Street Journal said.
Prior to this, the United States, Australia and the United Kingdom launched a new security alliance ‘AUKUS’ in September and announced their position to strengthen the regional alliance, including Australia’s development of nuclear-powered submarines.
In this regard, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Zhao Lijian said at a regular briefing on the 30th that “the United States opposes increasing its arms and expanding its military power based on the Chinese threat theory.” Please stop any behavior that threatens safety.”
